Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Could you not just rewire it so that the dip bulb is permanently connected to the output of the light switch, and the main is switched on and off in parallel by the dip switch? I’m pretty sure I wired my mini that way in the dim and distant.

Re: João Gilberto RIP

Katie Derham did a lovely documentary about the whole Brazilian thing a couple of years ago. Worth a watch if you have an idle hour.

Took me a while to work out that the conversation had switched from rooters to rowters.

Re: Nothing In Particular

The BT HomeHub 6 is the same device as the EE SmartHub, so probably suffers from the same problem of not automatically switch from ADSL to FTTP when it’s supposed to. When your fibre goes live, if it doesn’t connect automatically you’ll have to do a factory reset by poking something in the reset hol...

Nice simple bit of blues rock. First band I ever saw live, about a month before this was shot.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Have you tried shopping around? Last year a nice man in in a huge lorry decided to write off my Honda Civic. Direct Line then decided it was knock for knock and upped my premium from £750 to about £1000. Half an hour on the internet had me signed up with LV for £350! And yes, I did tell them about t...

Re: Autoitalia 2019 Brooklands (pic heavy)

While Ford marketed the car as "Ford Capri – The Car You Always Promised Yourself", "Car" magazine described the Capri as a "Cortina in drag". What other comparable (price range) cars were there in the UK at the time ? Well this, for a start: https://i.postimg.cc/1tzCkNBT/10-A9-E9-B5-5-C80-4703-876...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

flies getting stuck in your teeth, bumblebees leaving bruises on your face etc etc. Now there’s a thing. I drove back from Kingsdon (1m from Podimore roundabout on the A303) to Newton Ferrers a couple of days ago. Almost exactly 90 miles on a beautiful spring day. Doing that sort of journey when I ...
